October 29, 1943 - April 9, 2018
Diane Carole Dolginow, 74, passed on Monday, April 9, 2018 in Edina, MN. Diane (“Di”) was the oldest child of D. Daniel and Dolores Wolf of St Louis. She attended the University of Kansas, graduated with a degree in education and taught school in Kansas City. She met Yale T. Dolginow at KU, they married in 1965. Diane was organized and proactive and thus through Yale was supportive of the many family businesses. She and Yale raised three fantastic daughters. Diane and the family moved to Edina in 1977 where she created a loving home for her family. Diane was a key founding member of Bet Shalom Congregation in Minneapolis of which she was very proud. She preferred to work in the background but was a driving force to make Bet Shalom the vibrant community it is today. She was devoted to her family and proud of the home she created, making sure tasks, whether homework or laundry were completed on time and properly. Diane was beautiful inside and out and, as everyone knew, always prided herself in her appearance. Diane was the core of her Family and was instrumental in any success she and Yale had in businesses and charitable organizations. Diane cherished her family friends and the sales associates at Talbots in Edina, which became a key support group for her in these last difficult months. She had a special love of her “KU Girls” group, eight “girls” who graduated together and still met regularly. Di is survived by her husband, Yale of 52 years; and daughters, Lisa Durst (Steve) of Dublin CA, Deborah Williams (Theodor) of Eden Prairie, MN and Jamie Rocheford (Jeff Kittelson), Minnetrista, MN, along with six grandchildren, Robert Durst, Matthew Durst, Lizzie Rocheford, Sam Rocheford, Jacob Kittelson, and Amaija Williams and her loving brothers, Dennis and Douglas Wolf, and their families, and her many nieces and nephews. The Family wishes to extend a special thanks to Drs. George Morrison, Fredrick Nemer, Erich Weinshel, and nurse Sarah Kruell.
